Alex Haidaris, MSTCM, L.Ac.

Alexandra ("Alex") Haidaris is a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Oregon. She graduated from the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences in Oakland, California where she earned her Master’s in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MSTCM). She is nationally board certified (NCCAOM) and has an undergraduate degree in Anthropology from San Francisco State University. After graduating, she continued her education in herbal medicine by studying traditionally used herbs while travelling in Siberia for 2 years.

Before becoming a practitioner, Alex was a patient receiving acupuncture and experienced great results. Her desire to help people, interest in health and herbalism, and her personal experiences with the effectiveness of TCM converged into a passion for sharing TCM with others. She particularly enjoys treating digestive issues, insomnia, and musculoskeletal complaints such as pain and arthritis, and loves to utilize cupping, tui na (massage), and lifestyle/dietary advice.

Alex has a nurturing and accepting approach, always truly meeting people where they are at. She enjoys learning about the diverse experiences of her patients, and hopes with everyone she meets to share with them the joy of living and healing naturally.

When not practicing, Alex enjoys hitting the trail, eating out at just about any cuisine, and experimenting with dishes at home. Otherwise, you might find her with her nose in a book!

From Alex's Patients:

Alex and Dee create a great, welcoming environment. My teen and I have gotten the relief we needed from Alex's acupuncture treatments. Release of shoulder and back knots as well as jaw tension. If massage or other options haven't worked for you and you are pondering acupuncture, then highly recommend getting acupuncture from Alex. She is great!

Alex is incredibly gentle, caring, and knowledgeable! As someone who is nervous about needles, I never thought I’d be able to do acupuncture. But Alex always makes me feel calm and comfortable. I look forward to my appointment every week!

Alex, and Dee the receptionist, incredible experience every time my partner and I come for treatment. Alex has helped me with my pain a lot. We’re both always better after each treatment.

I cannot recommend Alex and G&L Acupuncture enough. Whether you are new to traditional Chinese medicine or looking for a new provider, you will not be let down by Alex at G&L.

Incredibly caring and thoughtful review of my health followed by a very relaxing and helpful treatment. Alex went out of her way to make sure I was comfortable and that I understood how the healing process works in this treatment environment.

Do not delay in scheduling with Alex if you are looking for help. I left feeling better and already have more treatments scheduled.
